... Ian is not very impressed with his hatred of meat on the bone. Kate tries to rescue the situation by removing the chopped up bones. She fills two plates and has no more room for anymore. The meat arrives (both frozen) - a thinly sliced meat with a huge layer of fat in the middle and chunks of mutton full of gristle. We eat very little, mainly eating the rice and broth.

This is near the start of the Yangtze but it is still quite wide and moves quickly. The Gorge itself was quite civilised. The Chinese had built a stone path up to the rock the tiger used to leap the Gorge. The path also contained three tunnels. The rest of the Gorge is, I think, wilder as people trek there. On ...
